Sign up for the latest news and stories to learn more about STARs, smart hiring, and the future of work.
*STARs (noun) — There are more than 70 million talented professionals who don’t have a bachelor’s degree but have gained valuable skills on the job, through training programs or other alternative routes.2
There’s no lack of diverse talent. Smart employers know that there’s only a gap in ways to find it. Inclusive hiring doesn’t have to be so hard. There are more than 70 million STARs in the U.S. that cut across all races, regions, ethnicities, genders, and generations. By making it easier to discover STARs in our own urban, suburban, and rural communities, Stellarworx is the only marketplace you’ll need when you’re ready to embrace change.
Bachelor’s degrees have become a crutch for hiring managers when assessing a candidate’s actual skills. Why not have a partner instead? Stellarworx is unique because it brings together three key groups: STARs, ready-to-hire employers, and quality training providers – the missing link to making more informed hiring decisions based on validated skills.
An employer seeking to fill an entry-level tech role could spend six months to 2 years identifying and building trust with a quality training provider. Stellarworx speeds up this process, so that employers can more easily connect with the right training providers and more quickly hire their next STAR.
The higher a candidate’s match score, the clearer the signal to employers that this candidate has the right skills to match the job listing.
Our proprietary algorithm “learns” with every use to improve the efficiency of matching employers to only the best quality candidates.
Ratings and feedback from employers and providers in the marketplace mean better connections and greater confidence.
